This gallery contains pictures of different types of
Implanon® and Nexplanon® as used in the UK
This picture gallery shows images of the insertion technique used to place the Nexplanon® type of device under the skin of the inner side of the upper arm. It is usually placed in the non-dominant arm – ie the arm someone does not generally write with. Some people, and places, continue to use the same arm several times, for several devices but in the UK it has recently been advised that the same arm is used twice, then the other arm should be used (2017).
This is not showing insertion into a human arm, but into a training device.
Subdermal Implant Insertion Technique
Images of the
SILCS Caya® Diaphragm
This offers a ‘one size fits most women’ opportunity for most women who don’t want to use another type of contraception/birth control, containing hormones, or a device inserted into the uterus/womb. It should still be used with spermicidal cream or jel/gel (jelly). For more information on the Diaphragm, see the relevant page within the contraception information section of this site.
The Female Condom – Two Types
Made of polyurethane, these are worn by a woman, inserted prior to sexual intercourse. They can stay within the vagina after the first episode of sex – some women keep their female condom in situ and use it a second time, with the same partner. As long as it doesn’t come out and nothing escapes, this is logical, but it is only licenced for single use. It is not yet licenced for washing and reuse, unlike the diaphragm – Dutch Cap. For more information see the relevant information page within the contraception information section of this website.
